EXCLUSIVE: Daniel Radcliffe, Paul Dano comedy scores multiple deals.

Swiss Army Man

A24 has announced its first territory sales since hiring Sahsa Lloyd in January to oversee international distribution and business development, cutting a raft of deals on Swiss Army Man.

Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s quirky Sundance buddy movie starring Daniel Radcliffe – as a corpse – and Paul Dano screens in the market at Cannes today and Monday (May 16) and has landed at a handful of prestige buyers.

Madman Entertainment will release Swiss Army Man in Australia, Sun in Latin America, D Films in Canada, Volga Films in Russia and the Baltics, and Front row in the Middle East.

Former Goldman Sachs executive Lloyd negotiated the deals. New York-based A24 will release the film wide in the US on July 1 and will work closely on marketing campaigns with its internaitonal partners.

Kwan and Scheinert won the Sundance dramatic directing award for the story of a man stranded on a deserted island who enlists the help of a corpse to make his way home.

A24 also holds worldwide rights to Azazel Jacobs’ The Lovers, which is currently shooting with Debra Winger and Tracy Letts, and Barry Jenkins’ coming-of-age film Moonlight, the company’s first production, which is in post.
